Do astronomy and alcohol mix? Find out when Neil deGrasse Tyson mixes up a “Brain Freeze” at the bar at BAM with Brian the Bartender. In addition to creating his signature “Drink of the Evening” Neil also takes us on a tour of the constellations in the art installation hanging over the bar… and suggests a few new ones to be considered, like the iPhone and the Prius.
Belly up to the backroom bar at the Bell House before “StarTalk Live! Poisons, Parasites and Infectious Diseases” and watch as Neil deGrasse Tyson invents his signature drink of the evening. With a little help from Kim the bartender, Neil whips up vodka (friend of the show Dan Aykroyd’s Crystal Skull Vodka, of course), tequila, bitters, ginger beer, lemon juice and a cherry into a potent “Parasitic Poison.” Recorded 9/22/14 by Navid Baraty.
